Battle Through the Heavens - chapter-713
The black-colored chain was just like a poisonous snake as it suddenly
penetrated the air and transformed into a blurry black line that shot
explosively toward Yao Lao a short distance away.
The tip of the chain was unusually sharp and filled with a mysterious
rune. Circles of spiraling lines covered the tip of the chain. Under the
energy activation of Protector Wu, some evil aura seeped out from it.
This deep, profound chain was not an ordinary metal chain.
Yao Lao also did not dare to slight this chain that pierced through the
sky toward him. This ‘Hall of Souls’ was extremely mysterious. Their
attacks also appeared to be able to cause massive damage toward spiritual
bodies. However, it was fortunate that Yao Lao was not an ordinary
spiritual body. With the protection of the ‘Bone Chilling Flame’, he
was not totally without any ability to fight back against the powerful
hunter of the ‘Hall of Souls’.
The dense white flame in his palm withered up and down before suddenly
transforming into a fire arrow that shot out explosively. Finally, it
violently collided with that black chain.
A low, deep sound appeared when the two collided. However, there was no
overly intense energy explosion sound. There was only a dense white
ripple force that was formed within the dark-black circle quietly
expanding out. The air also shook a little wherever the force spread.
The black-colored chain collided with the fire arrow. There was a huge
gap in strength compared with the attack that Protector Wu had expected.
He could even faintly feel the strange intertwining feeling of hot and
cold with one another. That feeling was swiftly transmitted from the
chain, causing the Dou Qi in his body to fluctuate.
“No wonder you were able to escape the capture of the ‘Hall of
Souls’ back then. You actually relied on the strength of this
‘Heavenly Flame’!” The chain withdrew after it attacked before it
lingered around Protector Wu’s side. The pair of red eyes stared at Yao
Chen opposite of him and spoke with some surprise.
The strength that an ordinary spiritual body could unleash was greatly
reduced regardless of how strong their spiritual strength was when they
met a hunter from the ‘Hall of Souls’. The latter’s weapon was
uniquely manufactured and possessed the specialized effect of restraining
a spiritual body. This kind of restraint, however, had lost much of its
effect when faced with a spiritual body that possessed a ‘Heavenly
Flame’ and some natural spirit objects.
It was just as he had said. Back then, Yao Lao had indeed relied on the
strength of the ‘Bone Chilling Flame’ in order to escape being
captured by the ‘Hall of Souls’ and survive.
Yao Lao’s gaze looked indifferently at Protector Wu, who had black fog
writhing around his body. He tightened his hand a little and the dense
white flame swiftly agglomerated in his hand. A moment later, it formed a
white ruler that was a little smaller than Xiao Yan’s Heavy Xuan Ruler.
A flame rose on the ruler but it gave people a kind of ice-cold feeling.
However, if one were to really come into contact with what seemed like a
cold flame, it was likely that one would instantly transform into a pile
“The restraining effect your ‘Hall of Souls’ has toward a spiritual
body does not have much use against me. Hence, you should reveal your
true strength. Otherwise, the Misty Cloud Sect will be the place that you
will die today.” Yao Lao pointed the white ruler at Protector Wu from a
distance and slowly spoke.
“Hmph, your words are indeed arrogant. Even without the restraining
effect, you are actually thinking of killing this protector in your
spiritual body state? Aren’t you dreaming?” Protector Wu also laughed
coldly when he heard this. His arm immediately shook and three black
figures carried a ‘clang’ sound as they extended forcefully from his
back. Finally, they became just like three poisonous snakes that
continuously lingered over his head.
“Triple Soul Breaking Chain!”
A hand that contained a black fog was extended out. The hand seal
immediately changed and the three chains that lingered over Protector
Wu’s head carried the whizzing sound of rushing wind as they abruptly
The three chains transformed into black lines and coincidentally sealed
off all of Yao Lao’s retreat path as they crossed each other. Clearly,
this Protector Wu had already reached a skillful stage when it came to
using a strange weapon like a chain.
Yao Lao waved his sleeves as he coldly looked at the three black lines
which were magnified in his eyes. He flicked his five fingers and five
dense white flames swiftly agglomerated and took shape. They lingered
over his body like long snakes before finally shooting out in a sudden
explosive manner and collided head-on with the three chains.
The chains collided with the dense white flame and waves of metal-like
sounds were emitted. Some sparks even shot out. However, regardless of
how strange and unexpected the chain attacks were, the five long fire
snakes that Yao Lao commanded were able to hold them ofg. Yao Lao’s
sophisticated fighting experience was indeed extraordinary.
Protector Wu clearly felt extremely surprise after failing to achieve any
actual effect despite using this tactic. He could clearly sense that
there would be a cold and hot intersecting feeling spread along the chain
each time the chain and the flame collided. He was really unfamiliar with
this kind of feeling.
“This old man who will not die is indeed powerful. No wonder the
‘Hall of Souls’ allowed him to escape despite having dispatched three
expert protectors back then. In the past, I thought that there were some
lies in those fellow’s words. It is unexpected… that he is really
tormenting and troublesome.” Protector Wu’s heart also grew
increasingly more serious as both parties attacks became more intense.
The strength of Yao Lao’s spirit and the troublesome ‘Bone Chilling
Flame’ had far exceeded his expectations.
“Yun Shan, quickly finish Xiao Yan off!” That unusual temperature
caused the black fog on Protector Wu’s body to fluctuate after he
violently collided with Yao Lao again. At this moment, he no longer cared
about his face and cried out to Yun Shan who had begun an intense fight
with Xiao Yan far away.
Yao Lao’s expression also sank when he heard Protector Wu’s cry. The
dense white flame on his body grew even more dense. His attacks also
suddenly became sharper. Looking at the situation, there was some
difficulty if Yao Lao wanted to kill the latter within a short period of
time. After all, despite the restraining effects of Protector Wu on
spiritual bodies being reduced to the minimum with the help of the
‘Bone Chilling Flame’, this fellow was also a Dou Zong class expert
no matter how one put it. Killing him was easier said than done.
Yun Shan in the distant sky was also slightly startled when he heard
Protector Wu’s cry. That old fellow was actually this strong? Even
Protector Wu had difficulty finishing him off?
The surprise in his heart continued for a moment before Yun Shan suddenly
waved his sleeve. A wild, violent Dou Qi shook Xiao Yan who was attacking
him away. His body immediately moved back while a majestic Dou Qi
suddenly erupted out from his body in all directions.
“Little bastard. Originally, I wanted to play around with you. However,
from the looks of it now, the situation does not allow me to do so. Since
that is the case, I shall finish you off with one attack. Yun Shan gave
Xiao Yan a dense smile as he shook his sleeves. A majestic deep-green
energy immediately fluctuated as it erupted from his head. It swiftly
wiggled and formed a green longsword that was over a feet long.
The surface of the longsword was unusually dark and gloomy. Its entire
body was without luster. However, the moment the longsword agglomerated
and formed, the surrounding suddenly fluctuated. Clearly, this longsword
that was completely agglomerated from Yun Shan’s powerful Dou Qi
possessed an extremely great amount of energy.
Xiao Yan looked at the huge energy longsword that was rotating while it
suspended above Yun Shan’s head. He sensed the frightening energy that
was contained within it, and his face changed drastically. The wings on
his back were flapped as he immediately withdrew some distance. The seal
on his hand also suddenly changed as he did so.
The powerful Dou Qi within his body began to swiftly gallop following the
swift seal formation within Xiao Yan’s hand. Finally, it quickly passed
through a couple of specific veins under Xiao Yan’s solemn focus…
Xiao Yan’s essence and attention were gathered to extreme levels under
the pressure of such a crucial point. The little troubles that would
occasionally appear when he agglomerated Dou Qi during his usual training
had become unusually smooth at this moment.
The Dou Qi in his body flowed unceasingly as they poured into the couple
of specific veins before flowing into Xiao Yan’s palms. Following the
flow of such enormous amounts of Dou Qi into it, his pair of originally
long arms transformed into something large at this moment. A bright
powerful glow gradually surfaced. In the end, it appeared just like a
bright sun that was extremely glaring.
The powerful glow that suddenly erupted from Xiao Yan’s palm also
caused Yun Shan to knit his brows slightly. Why was it that this little
bastard had a never-ending number of trump cards? It was really
troublesome… a thought rotated within his heart before he immediately
glanced at the battleground between Protector Wu and Yao Lao in the
distant. His heart became even more surprise especially when he saw that
the former had actually ended up in a disadvantageous position under Yao
Lao’s sharp attacks.
“Looks like I cannot delay any longer. I need to hurry up and finish
off this little fellow. Otherwise, if the old fellow is allowed to free
his hands, things would be bad for me…”
A thought flashed across Yun Shan’s heart as his eyes suddenly turned
stern. The seal on both of his hands changed abruptly, and a low cry that
was filled with a chill killing intent resounded across the sky.
“Submerged Wind Braking Blades!”
An unusual sharp sword whistle suddenly sounded after the cry appeared.
Everyone suddenly raised their heads only to see that the Dou Qi
longsword above Yun Shan’s head actually began to rotate wildly. An
unusual sharp whistle was emitted from it.
“Hah! Hah!” The sound continued…
Yun Shan’s hand seal changed and his finger pointed toward Xiao Yan in
the distance. That violently rotating longsword immediately rushed out
The speed of the longsword was so fast that could even penetrate through
the barrier of the air. Hence, it appeared at a spot that was merely
dozens of meters from Xiao Yan within a few flickers.
The faces of Hai Bodong and the others within the chaotic battleground
instantly turned a lot paler when they saw this frighteningly powerful
attack by Yun Shan. Despite being such a great distance apart, they could
still sense the frightening energy that was contained within the
longsword. If they were to be struck by it, they understood that they
would at least end up being seriously injured.
Yun Yun delicate hands also quietly covered her red lips as she stood
near the wedding stage in the open ground. Her graceful, moving, pretty
face displayed some paleness. This kind of attack was something that even
an expert whose strength was at the peak of the Dou Huang class would
have a difficult time receiving, much less the current Xiao Yan…
However, the person involved, Xiao Yan, had suddenly shut his eyes slowly
at this very moment in front of the countless number of gazes that
contained various emotions. When he did so, the seal on his hand had
suddenly changed. Immediately, a similarly majestic and powerful energy
abruptly erupted in the sky!
“Open Mountain Seal!”
An energy handprint that was a few dozens of feet in size suddenly
surfaced following the low, deep cry that resounded in Xiao Yan’s heart.
The moment this energy handprint appeared, the air around Xiao Yann
became like a ripple that swiftly fluctuated…
